  1. Fantastic!
    Jodie9th December, 2019

    This tour was excellent - a wonderful way to see Bethlehem. Our guide, Boaz, was very engaging, conveying his extensive knowledge of Biblical history in an unassuming, non-judgemental way. We loved seeing the Church of the Nativity and the Shepherds' Field. Seeing the Banksy artworks around the city was also a surprising bonus of this tour. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone! We loved every moment!
  2. A must go trip!

    This half day tour of Bethlehem did not disappoint. They were on time, friendly and very .courteous. This is a great value. And time well spent. We felt very safe, comfortable with our guide. The mini-van was very comfortable. So much better than a large bus tour. Kudos to this company and guide
  5. WOW WOW WOW. Dont book with anyone else!

    I booked the half day Bethlehem tour as I only had a day in Jerusalem. From start to finish the booking was first class and faultless. They are a small local company which attracted me in the beginning even though they are new without many reviews, The team are very professional and as local know so much about the history of both Israel and Palestine and are so friendly nothing is too much hassle. We even got to see the Banksy hotel - the museum is an extra 15 NIS but well worth it if you want to see a snapshot of Palestine and the history. The tour itself has special privileges due to the guides knowing everyone and meaning you can avoid the long queues to some degree. Anything you want to see will be included if at all possible - just ask! The hospitality was amazing and his may be just because the company is setting up but I have a feeling this may be the whole ethos of Elijah and his team. From George our first driver (such a great guy) to our Palestinian guide (sorry forgotten his name) to the staff in Elijahs store. The visit ends with visit to the store but there is no pressure to buy and the prices are very good so I actually bought a lot! Much better value than Jerusalem and guaranteed locally produced gifts made from real olive wood (you can see them making it) I almost didn't want to write such a good review as I will be returning and don't want the tours to be fully booked. Highly recommended
